    Iv searched alot on the twist barrel, i understand its FPS limit for maximum results and how it works. I do currently have a PDI 6.01 in my 5-7 and 4.3 Hicapa, i am wondering if it is worth going to a TK twist for a casual race gun build on the Hicapa. Or maybe even the non hop barrel?

    If it were me I'd just stay 6.01 because I always use that tight if a bore in my pistols. Why would you not want a hop up barrel?

    It's a race gun. The hop up throws of the accuracy in them. I say grab a TK Twist and disable the hop up.

    I guess the Twist with hopup off is like the non hopup barrel.

    Got the TK twist in both a g17 and p90 flavor, for the AEG one I can't see any improvement over stock barrel, in fact is worse on top of loosing ~25 fps from 330 to mid 300.

    My p90 suffers from no semi mode, so right now I've put it into my mp5k. Hoping to see improvement in semi.

    I'll try to be more scientific than just saying it worse than stock.
